All my characters are assembled, and I have entered the blanket stitch phase - all blanket stitching, all the time. For anyone just catching up, the plan is here, and the original artwork I am modeling these after is here. You can click to make this picture bigger and see my stitching so far:
I am moving all the characters through one color at a time. By my count I have done black, white, flesh tone, light brown, dark brown, and light grey. I still need to do dark grey, green, red, orange, turquoise, and pink. 6 down, 6 to go.
Started - Trick or Treat
I have been chomping on the bit to start on this one for a while, and this weekend after a... minor mishap in Star Wars made me think that maybe I needed to take a break from applique, I dragged this out. It felt SO GOOD to just do some classic rotary cutting and piecing again, this is not a particularly ambitious project, so I managed to complete all but one of my blocks.
The fabric is "Trick or Treat" by Doodlebug designs for Riley Blake, and the pattern is another fly-by-the seat original by me. More on this later this week.
You can now read about this quilt here and here. I am making my way through the handstitching, slowly but surely.
One day, I will complete it!
